The Flyers just completed an historically bad season, missing the playoffs again, firing gheir coach and their interim coach.
And Flyers fans voted with their eyeballs.
And one of the biggest ratings drops on NBCSP in the NHL:
Viewership for nationally televised NHL games on ABC, ESPN and TNT was up around 18% compared to the league’s final season with NBC Sports in 2020-21. The average of 460,000 viewers per game was the league’s highest mark since 2016-17.
TNT, which accounted for the bulk of the league’s cable schedule this season with 51 games, averaged 361,000 viewers, an increase of 29% from games on NBCSN in the 2020-21 season.
